Tessa | 1951 comments Description: "Knowing the outcome doesn’t always make a choice easier . . .

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.

In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through . . . and who she can’t live without."


I'm reading this with Steph, but anyone is welcomed to join us :) .

Tessa | 1951 comments Hey Steph, I've started reading this. Finished the first 3 chapters. :)
So far it's a pretty easy read, I'm hoping it will get more complex in the next chapters. Also, she has to re-live all the splits she sees... that must be tiring...

Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments Hello, Sorry i had a busy day yesterday and couldnt get the book started, but I will be starting soon. Sorry again..


message 5: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1951 comments No worry, I'm still at ch 3. I was busy reading something else. I'll let you set the pace. Read as much as you like/want/can and I'll catch up to you tomorrow :) .


message 6: by Steph (new)

Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I just got to chapter 3. I will just read a couple more chapters before i quit for the day and get some work done around the house.

Its good so far. I was confused at first but i reread the description again. Im not sure i could handle having the ability seeing the future and reliving everything.
:)

Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I am almost done with this book. Its pretty good. It is weird though with how it goes back and forth. but i guess thats the point.

How do you like it?


message 8: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1951 comments Wow, you're fast! I'm only at chapter 11. My enjoyment level right now is somewhere in between. I'm really curious how she'll adapt to her new life with the norms so all the switching to her other life is a little annoying.
I don't understand why both her love interests need to be football players. Really, athletes in books are overrated. They might look good, but they usually have small brains.


message 9: by Steph (new)

Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I had alot of free time yesterday so i just read the book.
I dont understand the whole football players as love interest either. Atleast Trevor is different, i seem to like him better than Duke.
I wonder what life she will choose. i guess we wont find out till the end.


message 10: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1951 comments I don't think the end is going to be that simple. Her choosing a life and just going with it. She seems to have a lot on her hand right now.
Also, is it just me or (view spoiler)

I'm at chapter 30. Will finish this book tomorrow.
So far the story is pretty average and a little predictable. Also, very simplistic in writing style, not un-enjoyable though. :)


message 11: by Steph (new)

Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I am totally wanting her to end up with Trevor. He seems like a good guy and his friend even said he has been better when she is around. So we will see. Ill have this book finished tomorrow.
Im going on a trip so ill have enough time to read during the car ride.
I may have to start the next book in the series after im done if you wanna join me on that one.

It's a very simple read. Wish it didnt go back and forth so much.
